Backing onto the mountain above Simonstown, The View boasts a stunning panorama of False Bay from two bedrooms as well as the dining room and lounges. The open plan living area opens out onto a patio which is the ideal spot to soak up the sun and the view of the sea. We have seen whales, dolphins, orca and beautiful sunrises from this protected yet open balcony. The beach, which abuts Boulders Beach with the largest colony of African Penguines, is a brisk walk down the hill (900m) and quaint Simon's Town with its British influence, its rich naval history and many restaurants is a five minute drive away. Our garden is indigenous and boasts wonderful protea and other fynbos.

The View is close to Simon's Town which is the historic naval base near the Southern tip of the Cape Town peninsula, so it provides easy access to nearly 3 centuries of historic charm! Slightly further afield, but also nearby, can be found the scenic...More

A wonderful house with great views over False Bay. Ian and Paula have created a home-away-from home feel in a beautiful location. Close enough to everything you need, but far away from the maddening crowd. Enough space for a family with some friends. You will...More

About the neighbourhood
Froggy Farm is above Boulders Beach, a sanctuary for African Penguins. There is a links golf course within walking distance, and a number of secluded beaches along the coast. The main road is a very popular cycling destination, being on the road to Cape Point, 20km away. Above the property, through the back gate is a mountain reserve which stretches all the way from Cape Point to Table Mountain.
Getting around
Although one can walk to Simonstown and Boulders Beach as well as local swimming beaches, and get local Uber taxis, these are not readily available and it is far better to have a rental car available to explore the area. If you wish to hire bicycles, there is a rental shop In Simonstown.
